The scan lines of my sony tv (KV29C5A) are visible on the screen (very faint). Can anyone help me find the source of this problem?

    The flayback voltage controler is not located on the transformer. Only the focus adjust is to be found there.

Hi,

Two possible reasons/solutions why:
1. one or more of your color drive transistors is/are faulty. These are the 3 transistors normally heatsinked in a separate squarish PCB connected at the rear end of the picture tube (CRT). If one or more is shorted, open is leak, then the video display would have faint re-trace lines. other indicators include too bright, unusual color;
2. the screen voltage from the flyback transformer (FBT) is a bit high. This is adjustable and the control is normally at the FBT itself (towards the rear). There is another control present for the focus.

Of course the usual safety precautions applying when working with live sets or electronics with high voltage and possible residual power (in the capacitors).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the postback. If your Sony KV29C5A is of the FE-1 chassis, the G2 voltage controller
    is in the C board. The C board is the squarish board at the very rear
    of the CRT. Adjustment could be made on RV701. If no amount of
    adjustment would make the flyback lines disappear, you need to check
    R722 (680K). In some instances it could also be any of R709 (330K) or
    R718 (33K) or R724 (470K).

    Cheers.

    A friendly reminder, you will be working probably on a live set and
    very near the high voltage section. The G2 alone carries nearly 1KV,
    please exercise extreme caution and safety practices/procedures when
    performing any of the indicated corrective measures.

Hi, I had a problem with my Sony CRT television.


The faint background lines are vertical flyback lines. Start your diagnosis by turning the brightness and contrast controls to minimum and view the screen in a darkened room. If you can now see a raster with horizontal lines visible then it is likely that the tubes A1 screen voltage is excessive. The screen voltage is usually within the range of 400v to 600v. Adjustment for this is often part of the flyback transformer. Check all high value resistors
in the screen and focus circuitry. Some of these reistors may be
built into the flyback transformer. As the picture gets brighter the beam current increases, this will eventually cause the X ray protection circuits to trigger shuting off the set. A fault in the video drive circuits to the cathodes of the tube will cause similar symptoms but usualy results in a predominance of one colour, ie
bright red, blue or green raster with flyback lines.

I have also experienced the same problem on two occasions, but my Sony TV KDLV3000 has actually been backwards and forwards on three occasions to be repaired. I have had a new control unit and will be having a second screen replacement shortlymad.gif. I have contacted my local Sony Centre and they have stated that they will only replace the TV if there are THREE IDENTICAL faultsfacepalm.gif.

COME ON SONY CENTRE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER AND TAKE A NOTE FROM JOHN LEWIS THERE CUSTOMER CARE IS SECOND TO NONE.

Not sure I'll buy a Sony again after this experience having been a loyal Sony customer for a number of years, will probably look at a Samsung or LG next time.

Thin curved lines in sony widescreen


Those sound like what is called "scan lines" and are the result of the way the picture is "drawn" on the face of the screen. Something in the set is allowing too much drive to the screen, as these are usually suppressed during normal operation...accordianman

Faint red lines in a curved arch like pattern


Guys I did this myself real easy. Just don't turn the corresponding screw too far. Only need to adjust it until the lines go away. Do it on a darker screen so the lines are more visible. I did the red 2 years ago and the green 6months before that. The blue lines are coming on my screen now and I've fixed it in 10 minutes. The TV is amazing.
